297 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of a cityscape at night; skyline photograph created by Jim Tarpo in Chicago, Illinois

My Chicago Balcony

297 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Chicago, Illinois

It’s always a joy to travel from California to visit my father at his residence at The Heritage in Chicago. This was my second attempt to capture the amazing view from the balcony. I was armed with a better camera and better lens than the prior time. Regrettably, I missed much of the cocktail and social hour with him and the rest of my family on this lovely night because… well because it’s not every day a photographer has the chance to acquire a cityscape this spectacular.

This image offers a different experience than most cityscapes. The viewer is in the city rather than simply looking at it. One can gaze down and observe the 10-story mural of Muddy Waters or a Picasso sculpture. The Sears tower can be seen rising above the Chase building. The dark building in the lower foreground is the old Marshal Fields (now Macy’s) department store that was famous for their animated Christmas displays. There is a tremendous amount of detail in this VAST photo that can be explored and enjoyed with a large print.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
